Second Complaint to Electoral Commission for Huhne

The Sunlight Centre has put in the following formal complaint to the Electoral Commission regarding Chris Huhne’s expenses. This comes on the back of the two LibDem councillors who blew the whistle on the murky affairs.

The Sunlight Centre for Open Politics has been looking into Huhne’s election returns for nearly a year. There are missing invoices, national irregularities, undeclared website costs and staffing holes.

Having been stonewalled on various occasions, Guido thinks they might be onto something with this one…

    If I may be so bold, I’d like to paste a comment I made from the previous topic onto this one (as this new topic appeared about 1 minute after I posted my comment on the old one, so my old one will probably be missed by most people)….

    I’m not sure if anyone’s spotted/mentioned this before, but I think the labour party and the BBC staff are rating people’s comments on the BBC blogs (perfectly decent comments start off with a high rating from real people, then after a few hours, those comments get reversed, and that logic is totally inconsistent with what you’d expect, ie you’d expect a highly-rated comment to stay near the top, you wouldn’t expect the overall user-audience’s taste to suddenly change direction).

    So, do your duty, and go through all the anti-labour/anti-bbc comments and up-rate them, and down-rate all the pro-bbc/pro-labour comments here:

    The economy failed to show significant growth over the past two quarters as household spending in the UK worsened.
    Gross domestic product grew by 0.5 per cent in the first quarter of 2011, according to the Office for National Statistics.
    However growth in the first quarter simply cancelled out a 0.5 per cent decline in GDP in the final quarter of 2010, which was disrupted by heavy snowfall.

    The figures revealed that household spending declined by 0.6 per cent, its biggest drop since the second quarter of 2009 after consumers were squeezed by the failure of wages to keep pace with inflation.
    The sluggish pace of growth will prompt fresh criticism that the Government’s austerity measures were damaging the economic recovery.

    Business investment also declined 7.1 per cent quarter-on-quarter – its biggest fall for two years.

    The public sector finance figures for April – the first month of the new fiscal year – are disappointing. In fact public sector net borrowing (excluding financial interventions) came in at £10bn, against £6.5bn expected, and is the highest borrowing figure for an April on record – last year’s deficit was reduced by the one-off bank payroll tax that raised £3.5bn.

    2) Texas’ economy is significantly smaller, exactly half of California’s, as its GDP compares to that of Canada (#10, $1,08 trillion).

    What Anonymous forgot to mention for soem reason;

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported the public sector net borrowing measure had a surplus of £3.735bn, higher than expected and the largest surplus since July 2008.

    However, a deficit of £1.266bn was recorded in January last year.

    Total public borrowing for the year to date now stands at £113bn, £14.1bn lower than at the same point last year.

    January’s surplus is expected to help the government meet its target for borrowing for the financial year to March 2011 of £148.5bn.

    To help cut the deficit the government is cutting public spending and raising some taxes, including last month’s rise in the VAT rate from 17.5% to 20%.

    The plan has the approval of the US Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, who told the BBC in an interview that he was “very impressed” with the plan to reduce the budget deficit.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
